Sarcoidosis Treatment in Females

Sarcoidosis can be a debilitating disease that causes recurrent inflammation in the body. Areas affected can include the lymph glands, lungs, liver, skin, heart, brain and eyes.

Sarcoidosis treatment needs to address the hormonal balance of the body. The hormones produced during a woman’s cycle can flare up pre-existing inflammation and pain in the body, particularly during the period. Pain can range from mild to debilitating and can be accompanied by nausea, loose stools, headaches and back pain.

Prostaglandins are the hormones which trigger the lining of the uterus to shed. They cause the menstrual flow to start, which is why pain and cramping is worst at the start of the period. As the prostaglandins taper off, so does the cramping.

Prostaglandins will increase inflammation and pain throughout the body. If you have pre-existing inflammation from a condition like sarcoid then you will probably find this inflammation and pain flares up during period time. Inflamed areas commonly include the lungs, joints, liver, lymph glands and skin. Fluid retention and puffiness may also occur.

Sarcoidosis treatment should aim to minimise this cycle of inflammation. A healthy diet is crucial. A good intake of the essential omega 3 fats plus fresh foods rich in the B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium and zinc are important during sarcoidosis treatment. Enough calories need to be consumed as a healthy body fat percentage helps maintain good hormonal balance including that of the prostaglandins.

Natural anti-inflammatory foods like ginger, turmeric, deep sea fish, pineapple and pawpaw may also be of benefit during sarcoidosis treatment to reduce period pain.

Chinese Medicine has a long history of use for the management of painful periods and PMS symptoms like fluid retention, sore breasts, headaches, mood swings and abdominal bloating. The herbs Dong Quai, Evodia, Ginger and Cinnamon can all assist in managing menstrual pain.

Gentle exercise like walking, yoga, cycling and swimming can help during sarcoidosis treatment by improving circulation to the uterus. Exercise keeps the pelvis aligned and mobilised. If you suspect your pelvis is out of alignment then seeing a good chiropractor or osteopath is a good idea.

You can ease period cramping with isometric exercises that free up the pelvis and improve circulation. For example, get on all fours and arch your back up and down like a stretching cat. Repeat a few times in order to relieve period pain.

When cramping starts, you can also lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Ask a friend to hold your knees together whilst you try to prise your knees apart. Do this at least three times then do the exercise in reverse.

The application of heat and massage has also been trialled with positive results for period pain. Even a hot bath can bring fast relief. The addition of Epsom salts (2 cups to a hot bath) is even more effective as the magnesium in Epsom salts acts as a muscle relaxant.

5 Tips to Prevent Injury in Badminton

There are many possible injuries one could potentially get as a result of playing badminton. The common ones are lower back pain, sprained ankle, tennis elbow and ligament tear.

If you are a serious badminton player, you should take precautions to prevent these injuries. The more intense you are during your game, the higher chance that you’ll get these injuries.

1. Warm Up/Warm down and Stretching

The reason why professional badminton players spend about 30 minutes in total to warm up/warm down is because they know the risks involved if they skip their warm up sessions.

Failure to warm up and stretch before exercise might result in muscle pulls. Not only does warm up and stretching help prevent muscle pulls; it will also help increase your performance when you play.

Therefore, do not get too eager to start playing when you reach the badminton court. Spend a few minutes to warm up and stretch so that your muscles are loosened and are more flexible during your badminton session.

2. Correct Technique

It is also important that you perform the right badminton techniques at all times. Performing the wrong techniques not only makes you perform poorly, you might get injured!

For example, the non-racket arm plays a very important role in helping you maintain body balance in badminton. It’s important at all times that you use your non-racket arm to balance the weight of your racket arm.

If you execute a badminton jump smash without using your non-racket arm to maintain balance, there’s a high chance that you will injure the muscles around your waist, hence causing lower back injuries.

Similarly, doing the wrong badminton strokes might cause you exerting unnecessary strength. This might make you pull a muscle.

3. Use the Correct Racket

Using the wrong badminton racket is a common cause for injuries. Seek advice from the racket dealer or any professionals on what racket best suits you.

For example, choosing a racket with a heavy head (power racket) might cause shoulder injuries to beginners. Power rackets are difficult to control and require the user to have good badminton strokes technique.

4. Correct String Tension

Similar to choosing the right badminton racket, you must use the correct string tension!

Higher string tensions are for control. Lower string tensions are for power.

Most professional players use string tensions above 30lbs (very high tension).

It is good for you to choose between 20-26lbs. Remember, the higher the string tension, the less power in your stroke. This results in a higher chance of getting injured while trying to put in more power into your strokes.

5. Right Badminton Shoes

You should get a pair of badminton shoes. Badminton shoes are specially made to absorb shocks and impacts.

The way the game of badminton is played is harmful to the knee cap. You must get shoes that are good shock absorbers to prevent injuries on your knee cap and your shin bone.

6. Do Not Play for Too Long

Too much of anything is not good. This common expression applies to badminton too.

Playing badminton for long hours will hurt your shin bone/knee cap/ankle as you continuously lunge forward to receive the shuttle.

Lunging forward is harmful to your dominant leg as it will need to absorb all the momentum from your lunge. That’s why the right badminton shoes helps reduce the impact.


Overall, like any other sport, injuries can be prevented easily if you take the necessary steps to reduce the chance of injuries.

Natural Skin Care Regime for Ethnic Differences in Skin Characteristics

The world is a big place and there are many different cultures, Europeans, Scandinavians, Asians, Africans, Hispanics and many, many more. Each of these cultures tends to have certain characteristics such as eye colour, hair colour, skin colour, etc,. Inherent with cultural backgrounds is a difference in skin types. For example, western cultures such as the central and northern Europeans have a tendency to fair complexions, hair and eye colour, while southern Europeans dent to have darker hair, brown eyes and darker, olive skin tones.

Africans and African Americans, have very dark or almost black skin, usually dark or black hair and brown eyes. Genetically, this skin type is less susceptible to the UV rays, although their skin can still get burned.

Asians on the other hand have a yellowish skin tone and can have brown or blue eyes but have mostly dark or black hair. Yes, genetics does have its opinion on how we look. The cultural differences are reflected in the skin and the genetic factors play an important role in how well our skin looks, how ‘tough’ it is and how vulnerable it is to certain skin problems.

For example, cultures that have a tendency to body hair, also have a tendency to oily skin and therefore have a potential problem with blocked secretory glands resulting in pimples and other skin problems. On the other hand, the Irish, who have a tendency to red hair and very fair skin, have less of a problem with oily skin, but they do tend to get burned easily and thus stand a greater risk to skin cancers. Similarly the Scandinavians and other central and northern Europeans and Americans.

Below are some generalised characteristics of various skin types from different cultural backgrounds:

Skin Characteristics of people with Anglo-Saxon origins

  • Fair, dry thin-skinned
  • Scars heal well
  • Signs of aging appear earlier
  • Burn easily in the sun
  • Bruising more obvious
  • Increased chance of skin cancer

Skin Characteristics of people with Southern Mediterranean origins

  • Oily, olive dark complexion
  • Signs of aging appear later
  • Cartilage tends to droop
  • Darker, thicker scars more common
  • Wrinkles appear later and in more localized areas
  • Skin cancer is rare

Skin Characteristics of people with Northern European origins / German and Scandinavian

  • Fair, blue-eyed, blonde
  • Thin skin
  • Scars heal well
  • Signs of aging appear early
  • Bruising more obvious
  • Greater chance of skin cancer

Skin Characteristics of people with African/African-American origins

  • Signs of aging appear very late
  • Very little fine wrinkling
  • Formation of keloids is possible
  • Pigmentation changes may occur
  • Thicker cartilage hard to change
  • Skin cancers are very rare

Skin Characteristics of people with Northern European/Irish and northern England

  • Ruddy freckled complexion
  • Red hair
  • Scars usually thin
  • Signs of aging appear later
  • Bruises easily
  • Pigmentation problems
  • Skin cancers are most common in this type

Skin Characteristics of people with Asian origins

  • Signs of aging appear late
  • Fine wrinkling does not usually occur
  • Pigmentation changes may occur
  • Skin cancers are very rare

Skin Characteristics of people with Southern European origins

  • Dark, oily brunette complexion
  • Signs of aging appear later
  • Fine wrinkling less common
  • Bruising lasts longer
  • Scars may be thicker and darker
  • Skin cancers are less common

Identifying the correct, natural skin care system for your skin’s characteristics is essential and may need to be adjusted depending on your specific genetic influences, as within each of these groups, there is a wide range in skin tones, which tend to overlap from group to group.

Each of the different categories of skin characteristics has various advantages and disadvantages specific to that group. However, the overall structures and functions of our skin are very similar and are therefore cared for in very similar ways. Knowing your skin’s particular strengths and weaknesses, you can tailor your skin care approach to your particular skin-characteristics.

How To Detoxify in 5 Easy Steps

This Program will help you:

  • Lose Weight
  • Have More Energy
  • Have Better Bowel Movements
  • Lower Cholesterol
  • Lower Blood Pressure
  • Improve Hair, Skin and Nails

Step 1

Take DE (1 tablespoon daily)

Step 2

Drink Ionized Water (Rejuvenator)

Step 3

Eliminate almost 300 sextillion free radicals daily (Protandim)

Step 4

Rub Magnesium Oil on your body every night

Step 5

Use an FIR sauna 30 minutes daily

Step 1 -Detoxification with Diatomaceous Earth

One of the major obstacles with treating any illness, particularly weight gain, is the dilemma of a toxic body and all the complications it presents. When a person possesses a coated colon and a body full of toxins, any medicine or natural substance used to treat a problem will be often be ineffective.

According to, there are 3 major ways in which a product that I have used with many clients, called Diatomaceous Earth (Food Grade), works to detoxify the body and rid it of the harmful elements that often sideline or even cause a weight loss program to fail.

Diatomaceous Earth – when magnified 7000 times – looks like a cylinder full of holes–kind of like Rice Chex Cereal. This cylinder has a very strong negative charge. As these millions of cylinders move through the stomach and digestive tract, they attract and absorb fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticides and drug residues, E-Coli, and heavy metals. These are trapped inside the cylinder and passed out of the body. In addition, any larger parasites that happen to be in the stomach or digestive tract are “cut up” and killed by the sharp edges of the Diatomaceous Earth. All of these activities result in a much healthier body with less sickness. People often say “I just feel better” with Diatomaceous Earth. This better feeling comes from all the “junk” being removed from the body and by giving the immune system the “jump start” it needs.


Diatomaceous Earth is very hard. On the hardness scale where diamonds are a 9, Diatomaceous Earth is a 7. This is very important, because as those millions of tiny hard and sharp Diatomaceous Earth cylinders pass through the small and large intestines, they “scrub” the walls. After only a few months of taking Diatomaceous Earth, the intestine wall is no longer coated with mucus and molds but CLEAN!! The advantages of this are several:

  1. Regular bowel movements (This is the #1 comment everyone makes about DE)
  2. Healthier Colon. This is especially important as we get older. A clean healthy colon keeps away polyps, cancers, and ulcers. Today, many are spending thousands of dollars to get colonics to do the same thing as Diatomaceous Earth does.
  3. Many users report increased energy and needing less sleep. This is a result of all the food and nutrients that are taken in being better absorbed into the blood stream. With a coated colon–many nutrients never get absorbed.


A small amount of Diatomaceous Earth gets absorbed into the blood stream as silica. One of the benefits of Silica is that it helps to destroy bad fats. Most people taking Diatomaceous Earth have lowered their cholesterol by 40-50 points. They are also amazed at how their high blood pressure goes down.

  1. Sore joints and ligaments feel better
  2. Skin clears up (acne-age spots-psoriasis)
  3. Hair and nails are stronger and grow faster
  4. Stronger teeth and gums
  5. Healthier respiratory tract–less coughing
  6. Menopause has less symptoms
  7. Healthier urinary tract

The benefits of silica are many. In today’s grains, there is actually a shortage of silica. Years ago, the silica found in our foodstuffs was adequate, but with today’s hybrids and depleted soils, only about 1/3 of the silica needed is supplied in our food. Diatomaceous Earth is a simple and inexpensive way to get the silica your body needs.

I have tried many detoxification programs over the years, but I have never tried anything as easy and effective as Diatomaceous Earth. It really works!

Step 2 – Drink Ionized Alkaline Water

Obesity is actually protecting our bodies and acts as insulation to the highly acidic lifestyle we lead. Ionic water can literally save our lives and end (for many of us) a lifelong obesity problem. I recommend Rejuvenator Ionizer ( Rejuvenator is the world’s smallest water ionizer and costs only $40 (compared to many water machines over $4000). If you let Rejuvenator sit in the water for at least 5 minutes, your water should be close to 9.0 pH. If you eat healthy, alkaline foods, your total body pH should be near 7.4 (the same as your blood). Otto Warburg, MD won the Nobel Prize in 1931 because he proved that when our bodies become alkaline (over 7.0 pH), no disease can survive in an alkaline environment.

The term alkaline water is just a label used to describe ideal drinking water as provided by nature; one of many labels that arise as we explore the hidden properties of water. Alkaline water has more excess oxygen and alkaline minerals than neutral or acid tap water. It is highly oxygenated water with the oxygen form that is needed by our cells. Alkaline water has 100’s of times more excess oxygen then neutral tap water and no acid elements or toxic substances in it. The discovery of ionized water closely replicates the living qualities of high altitude mountain spring water: Fresh, Invigorating, Life Enhancing, Free Radical Scavenging and Delicious.

Alkaline water is drinking water as it should be, and as it is in nature’s best waters like glacier waters. If you measure the properties of glacier water, considered the very best drinking water, it has similar properties to ionized water – alkaline pH, high colloidal mineral content, active hydrogen and micro clusters. In nature you see a separation of water into acid and alkaline: high altitude spring waters tend to be alkaline (for drinking), whereas hot spring waters are acidic (but have a reputation for skin cleansing)..

Ionized alkaline and acid waters are used in hospitals and clinics throughout Japan and South Korea, where the water ionizer is classified as a medical device.

Ionized water is considered to be one of the most effective and easy ways for your body to: hydrate, alkalize and detoxify. Alkaline water can slowly reverse the aging process, which is a gradual process of acid waste accumulation. It is every effective because the water penetrates deeply to dissolve and remove toxins from the body. Acid wastes like lactic acid that are insoluble in neutral water become soluble in alkaline water and so can be removed from the body by drinking alkaline water. Alkaline water has many reported benefits. It can help with weight loss, help the body detoxify, reduce the aging process, help in cases of diabetics and other health conditions, provide valuable anti-oxidants, and help prevent cancer.

Slightly alkaline blood pH ensures that micro-organisms remain in harmony with the body. When the pH becomes acidic there is a lack of oxygen which causes a proliferation of antagonistic, anaerobic microforms to appear. The acidic body becomes a breeding ground for germs, fungus and viruses. They consume the food we eat and leave us more acid waste excrements! Acidity coagulates blood and clogs up the capillaries. Over-acidity interferes with life itself, leading to virtually all sickness and disease including heart attacks and cancer, premature aging and obesity.

Our 75 trillion cells are slightly acidic within and are surrounded by slightly alkaline interstitial fluid around them. This polarity is essential for chemical or energy interchange, and is lost with acidity – one reason why so many people lack energy. Acidic pH interferes with mineral absorption. We will receive no iodine unless the body pH is almost perfect and calcium is very difficult to absorb with an excessively acid body. Excess acidity weakens all our systems and forces the body to take minerals from vital organs and bones to buffer/neutralize the acid and safely remove it from the body. The body creates cholesterol (fatty deposits) to safely store deadly crystallized acid wastes away from vital organs of liver, heart and kidney. ‘Obesity is an acid problem, the fat is saving our lives’ explains Dr Robert Young

Step 3 – Eliminate Free Radicals

What Causes Free Radicals?

Free radicals are cells that are searching for an electron and become out of control and very unpredictable. They can be destructive by accelerating the aging process, land in joints which may cause inflammation and arthritis or lead to serious diseases, such as cancer. The pollution that makes the 21st century so dangerous and complex along with consuming the Standard American Diet (SAD) consisting of junk food with artificial ingredients has led to increased inflammation and free radical activity. We live in dangerous times that require our immediate attention and action if we are to lead long, healthy lives.

Free radicals can come from our own metabolism, pollution, heavy metals, cigarette smoke, impure water, processed foods, drugs, magnesium and silica (minerals) deficiency, excitotoxins (such as Aspartame which is used to flavor diet drinks). Free radicals are simply a major part of our lifestyle and cannot be avoided.

Free Radical Elimination

Scientific studies indicate that we produce about 300 sextillion (that’s 21 zeroes) free radicals every day. It is a major reason why we are becoming sicker and dying younger. Free radicals are closely associated with an affluent culture. The problem with taking antioxidants is that they eliminate free radicals on a 1 to 1 basis. You couldn’t possibly take enough antioxidants to eliminate 300 sextillion free radicals daily. So what’s the solution?

Protandim ( is a formula designed by a PhD who received his degree from Duke University and has been nominated for the Nobel Prize. He discovered SOD, which is a natural antioxidant enzyme in your body. Protandim activates your own antioxidant enzymes and you then eliminates 1 million free radicals per second for 24 hours when you take 1 Protandim pill which incorporates 5 herbs. Protandim is an easy all-natural way to eliminate a major problem so you can have more energy, prevent many diseases and lead a healthy life.

Step 4 – The Miracle of Magnesium

  1. Helps to lower cholesterol
  2. Magnesium can help prevent obesity
  3. Great for insomnia and sleep problems
  4. Lowers risk of heart disease (especially hypertension)
  5. Helps prevent strokes
  6. Helps treat diabetes
  7. Improves mood and memory
  8. Helps prevent depression and anxiety
  9. Effectively prevents and treats headaches and pain
  10. Useful in treatment of Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia

* I recommend rubbing Magnesium Oil on your body every night

Step 5 -The FIR Sauna Benefits

  1. Average weight loss– 1 pound per week (daily 30 minute sessions)
  2. Calories expended– 600 to 2400 calories per 30 minute session
  3. Cleansing/Detoxification– Lymphatic and Immune System
  4. Cardiovascular Benefits– 6 mile run per 30 minute session
  5. Improves relaxation and sleep
  6. Facial Cleansing(reduces toxins)

The FIR Sauna is light, portable, unzips and can be washed and hung to dry, easily transported in the trunk of a small car, arm vents allows freedom to use laptop computer, phone, watch TV or listen to music.

The FIR sauna has been endorsed by NASA (used by the astronauts), American Heart Association, used by many hospitals, health clubs all over the world and is especially effective at burning fat.

Stage 2 Ovarian Cancer – How Leg Pain Saved My Life

I had never given a thought to ovarian cancer, and why would I? When it comes to gynecological cancers you hear about breast cancer all the time but you never hear much at all about ovarian cancer. I probably heard the words before at some point but until I was diagnosed with stage 2 ovarian cancer I was pretty ignorant of signs and symptoms and had no idea what to look for.

As it turned out, I had probably been having early warning signs for some time, possibly years, but I attributed them all as just regular old signs of getting a little older and entering that time in life where different things start to bother you or basically fall apart, kind of like a car that is reaching the end of your warranty. You know how that goes, your warranty runs out and you’re in the repair shop every other week.

So I had been having typical symptoms such as indigestion (never had that before), bloating, change in menstrual periods (heavier), and some pelvic pain right AFTER my periods. It was really a strange symptom I thought because it wasn’t right along with that time of the month but a few days after. But then it would go away and I would just figure, you know, getting older, etc.

But then I started having this annoying leg pain. It was sort of a radiating pain, so I figured it must be something to do with a nerve. Sciatica? I didn’t think so because it didn’t follow the usual M.O. for that type of nerve pain. Maybe a muscle strain? Fibroids? Yes, that was it, I decided, fibroids. I researched all the symptoms and everything added up! A huge fibroid must be pressing on my sciatic nerve and causing this intolerably aggravating leg pain. I made an appointment with my gynecologist and she agreed, yes, that must be it.

She sent me for an ultrasound where a large mass was seen, so I was immediately sent to a gynecologic oncologist. This is the best person for ANY type of GYN problems that are out of the norm because these doctors are very specialized, but it is very scary to be sitting in the oncologist’s office wondering if you may have cancer. As soon as I had my exam, my doctor scheduled surgery, and soon! My surgery was done 6 days later and the diagnoses was stage 2 ovarian cancer. I was then scheduled to begin chemotherapy. I did not want to hear this! All I could think of was losing my hair. In the grand scheme of things this is such a small thing, but believe me, when you are faced this it just seems so awful and dreadful.

But there was good news hidden inside all of the bad, and that was that I ONLY had stage 2 ovarian cancer and not a later stage which is most often diagnosed (due to the fact that no one realizes they are having any symptoms to be worried about).

I am happy to say I made it through it all and am now cancer free. I do believe though that if I had not had the leg pain I would NOT have gone to the doctor anytime soon, probably not for quite some time, as my symptoms were just so nonspecific and seemingly very benign, and my disease may have gone unnoticed and kept growing. So please do heed your body’s communication with you and if you have anything going on that seems really out of the ordinary, have it checked out by a doctor.

Tips For Summer Horse Riding – Apparel, Hydration and More

Summer is an excellent time to ride. The weather is beautiful, show season is in full swing, and everyone wants to come out and see your horse. Of course, it’s also about 100 degrees outside, the shade is nonexistent, and no one remembered to bring water. It can be fun. It can also be deadly. Equestrians can follow some basic rules to prevent disaster, enabling them to enjoy their horse in hot weather without undue risk or hardship.

Most animals will maintain proper hydration, given the opportunity. People must make a point of carrying and drinking water regularly in order to stay hydrated. Animals shed their winter coats; we must follow suit by using lighter horse riding apparel. We should also use lightweight horse tack to allow our mount’s natural cooling system to function properly. Riding in the early morning, instead of in the middle of the afternoon, is another way to stay safe and comfortable this season.

The Proper Horse Riding Apparel For Hot Weather

Yes, it’s hot – but shorts and flip-flops are not acceptable around the barn. Riders should still wear paddock boots, some type of breeches, an appropriate shirt, and an ASTM/SEI certified riding helmet. Hot weather horse riding apparel is made from lightweight, breathable fabrics that wick away moisture, helping the body to stay cool. Lighter colors reflect the sunlight, making them cooler than darker colors. While a tank top may seem appealing, a nasty sunburn is all it takes to learn the value of a long-sleeved cotton riding shirt. This horse riding apparel allows you to move freely while staying as cool as possible.

Horse Tack For Hot Weather Riding

Using lightweight horse tack is another way to help them stay cool and safe during hot weather. There are two major opinions when it comes to saddle pads in hot weather. Some say thinner is better as they dry faster. Others claim thicker fleece saddle pads are better as they provide better protection. Whichever seems to work better for you, it is important to keep it clean and dry to protect both the animal and saddle. If you have a lighter English saddle, this is the time to use it. Even a couple of pounds less can make a big difference in the heat’s intensity. Any horse tack that can be left in the tack room should be left. Grooming For Health And Comfort

Grooming in summer helps remove insect eggs and larvae, as well as dust, dirt, and dead skin cells. A good, stiff currying can remove potential problems before they get started, and your mount will love you all the more. Hoof care is more important than ever in summer as, in our attempt to keep our animals cool, we are tempted to leave them standing in water more often than we should. Stalls, corrals, pastures, and arenas must be kept dry, and hooves must be cleaned out frequently to avoid fungal infections. Wash racks must also be allowed to dry out completely to prevent thrush and other forms of foot rot.

Eating And Drinking Properly For Summer Fun

Summer heat often robs us of our appetites, leading to low blood sugar. Low blood sugar can result in poor judgment and uncharacteristic emotional outbursts, neither of which is good or safe. As much as we love them, animals of this size can cause serious injury without even trying. Even more important than food, dehydration can sneak up on a rider before they even realize they are thirsty. Humans lack an effective thirst response. More often, you will crave protein or carbohydrates when your body actually needs water. Riding in summer is physically demanding, and you should consume at least a full gallon of water each day. Only by carrying water with you and sipping regularly can riders be sure of staying properly hydrated.

Common sense is your best friend when it comes to riding in hot weather. Get to the barn early in the morning and enjoy the cool air. Stay in the shade whenever possible and be sure to keep sipping away at your water, Gatorade, fruit juice, or other appropriate beverage. Make frequent stops at the water bucket or trough, and dress in light colored, lightweight horse riding apparel. Keep horse tack to a minimum and be aware of the signs of dehydration. The nicest weather in the world won’t do you any good if you end up spending your summer vacation in the hospital or working a second job to pay vet bills. Stay hydrated, stay in the shade, dress yourself and your mount appropriately, and know your limits in order to enjoy a summer of equestrian fun.

Natural Remedies For Jaundice – Treatment of Jaundice

Natural remedies are best option to cure or prevent any disease. As it have no side effects, 100% safe and effective. Read some of the finest natural home remedies for jaundice.

Fatty Liver – Symptoms and Treatment

Fatty liver is a very insidious disease. A third of all Americans suffer from this disease (known among the medical community as steatosis) and don’t even know about it. In fact, liver symptoms are very broad and are often attributed to bad genetics or bad luck, but once you know them it is easy to recognize liver disease.

Fatty liver symptoms

Mild liver damage doesn’t show on liver tests. However, even in its mild form it can wreak havoc in your metabolism and drug clearing systems, both dependent on the liver.

The most important manifestation of liver disease are diseases resulting from it: obesity (especially the one hard to get rid of due to low metabolism), diabetes, high cholesterol, immune system deregulations, such as frequent cold, rashes, or allergies.

However, more subtle symptoms may be the only indication of fatty liver: bad breath, coated tongue, dizziness, tiredness, circles under the eyes, headaches, and feeling bloated all the time are common liver damage symptoms that are often ignored.

Fatty liver treatment

Once you know you have fatty liver, the next logical step is wanting to treat it. Treatment can be done in four simple steps and an optional step:

  • The first step is removing the causes of liver damage. This can be any form of drugs, including alcohol, caffeine, doctor prescribed drugs (talk with your doctor before removing them), homeopathic remedies, and recreational drugs. You can find out more causes of liver damage below.
  • The second step is adjusting your diet. A diet rich in vegetables and fruit and poor in animal products reverses liver damage all by itself and all the other methods only serve to accelerate the process or for advanced cases.
  • The third step is exercising. This will signal your liver it is time to start burning fat and the first fat it burns is the fat inside its cells.
  • The fourth step is taking certain herbal supplements that cause liver regeneration. These are turmeric, milk thistle, artichoke, and ginger, among others. You can also learn more about this below.
  • The fifth and optional step is to go on a liver detox for a week once a year. This will not do much on its own, but it can really kick-start a liver healing program.

How to Get Rid of Pickle Smell

Cucumber pickling remained widespread across the Levant and Maghreb regions, where it is still very popular today. Pickled cucumbers became popular in the United States due to the influence of the cuisine of Eastern European immigrants.

In any case, as beloved as pickles are, the stench that these brine-preserved vegetables can cause to your jars, cupboards, fridges, cars and your entire home is almost enough for many to wish that this so-called treat had vanished along with Ancient Rome and Greece.

How can you get rid of the odor of the pickle juice spilled on your sofa or eliminate the odor from that empty pickle jar? Here are some tips to help you out.

Pickle Smell Removing Products

* Febreze uses a chemical compound called cyclodextrin that has been used in household and custodial cleaning products for quite some time now. The sugar-like substance doesn’t necessarily “clean” the pickle odors out, but acts as an absorbent – like baking soda or crumpled newspaper – to help soak the odor out.

* An Ozone Generator will get rid of any odor you can think of if it’s left on long enough in a closed house or apartment. The specifics of this procedure are a bit unclear, but if you’re getting desperate enough, it might be worth a shot.

You will have to take full responsibility for what this might do to your home or your health. Just be sure to air out the home thoroughly after doing this because ozone is bad for your lungs.

* Get a Prozone Air Purifier. They’re good for keeping your whole house smelling fresh, not just eliminating those pickle odors. Unfortunately, they are also quite expensive.

* If you want something a little cheaper, you can try Ozium Air Freshener. It’s a small bottle, but just a little goes a long way. You can get this product at most Wal-Mart branches and some car part dealerships.

* A few deodorizing products that you can also use include Nature’s Miracle, Bane-Clene (which is great for allergies), and a well-recommended mattress cleaner used by the hotel industry called ProKlean.

* Try Renuzit on any scent. You pull it up, and the product’s gel-shaped cone absorbs the smells. It takes about 24 hours, but it works. The first day, the smell of the gel is very strong, but soon it fades along with the odor you want to get rid of.

* You can also buy home oil fragrances and burners from various candle shops. With fruity flavors like mango and all the benefits of aromatherapy, it may be the way to go. The selection of aromas available is quite extensive, and would suit most any aromatherapy fan’s taste.

They make useful burners for the oils too. The best part is that even though the bottles are small, all you need is about five or six drops each time, so the bottles last forever. You can even find a little fragrance burner you can plug into the lighter in your car, which is a lot more effective than those cheap little air fresheners you hang from the rear view mirror.

* Natural cleaners and odor-removing products are a good idea. If you want to get rid of that smoke odor in an eco-friendly manner, how about using some of the cleaning products found in the organic and natural foods section of your local grocery store? Often, these products work just as well as the brand name chemicals. Examples of these so-called natural cleaners are good old borax, hydrogen peroxide, enzymatic cleaners, and oxygen bleach.

Pickle Smell Removal

First of all, it should be fairly obvious to you that it isn’t the pickles themselves that are causing the funky smell in your house/car/cupboard/jar; it’s actually the smell of the pickling agents (vinegar or brine) that’s clinging onto your valued properties and possessions. If you want to get rid of this foul odor, try one of these tips.

* First, wash the jars well in hot, soapy water and rinse completely. Then pour in a solution of equal parts vinegar and water. Let it stand overnight with the lids off. Rinse, dry, store with the lids off, and the smell should be gone.

* You can also fill the jars with crumpled-up newspaper and let them stand overnight to remove odors.

* Use your pickle jar only for pickles, nothing more. If you can’t use it for pickles, throw it out or recycle it.

* For entire spaces that smell of pickles, try leaving an open box of sodium bicarbonate, otherwise known as baking soda, in the contaminated region (like the fridge or your cupboard). It can work there for a few months and it tremendously helps eat up pickle odors and other smells. Buy two boxes and sprinkle one of them on your carpets to help deodorize as well.

* You can either go to your local hardware store and rent a carpet steam cleaner to shampoo the carpets yourself, or you can hire a professional to bring in a big truck and do the dirty work for you. If you want to save money, the choice is obvious, and the guarantees some businesses will make these days smell funnier than the pickle odor you want them to remove.

* Check all corners and closets for any pickle residues in the apartment, then air out the place for a few days with as much cross-ventilation as possible.

* Potpourri or air fresheners are just going to mask the smell, but for a short time, they’ll do if you just need to get through one more day of pickle smell hell. You can also burn some incense, if you’d like; it basically uses the same idea.

* The key is to disinfect. A bottle of bleach or ammonia and a heavy-duty pair of rubber gloves should help a lot in sanitizing every little nook and cranny of your pad. Yes, elbow grease is the way to go when getting rid of pickle funk.

Cleaning Services

* Hire professional cleaners as a last resort; however, for many people the cleaners are the first choice because of the sheer ordeal of pickle smell removal. Indeed, if all else fails, commercial cleaning does exist to help you out.

Whatever the situation of the hirer, a professional cleaning service can cost a lot less money than most people would expect. The cleaners provide all the equipment and detergents. Above all, they have the experience of having cleaned rooms that would probably make your pickle-stinking room smell like roses in comparison.

Another point to consider is that if you tried to do the job yourself, you would no doubt spend more time than a professional cleaner would, and time is money! Get yourself out of that pickle and let somebody else do the job for you.

Foods Pet Birds Shouldn’t Eat – 5 Foods That Are Harmful to Pet Birds And Why

 If you own a pet bird, or if you’ve ever done any research about what makes a healthy diet for pet birds, you have surely run across foods that are listed as being almost always fatal to birds. But have you ever wondered why these foods are so detrimental to birds? Here are five foods birds should avoid, and the reasons behind their toxicity.  

Peanuts– Unshelled peanuts are often carriers of Aspergillus, a very common fungus (or mold) that causes food spoilage.  Once your bird has ingested this fungus they will often experience respiratory problems that may not at first be apparent. The good news is that Aspergillus is not transmitted from one bird to another, but if the environment in which your birds live is contaminated, the other birds are likely to also become sick. Aspergillus does not respond favorably, if at all, to treatment, and so an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Most bird owners, and with good reason, choose not to take any chances and refrain from feeding peanuts to their birds.  

Avocados– How can such a beautiful green fruit that is so delicious to humans cause such harm to birds? The Persin component in avocados is responsible for the irreparable destruction of the cells of the heart muscle which essentially causes the heart to fail. Toxicity has been shown to be caused by ingestion of the fruit, skin, stem, seeds, and leaves with the leaves being most potent. There are no tests known at this time that will definitively diagnosis avocado poisoning, and there are also no known treatments once the avocado has entered the bird’s system. Affected birds usually die within 24 to 48 hours.  

Chocolate– The chocolate that a lot of us can’t live without is something your bird can’t live with. Chocolate contains a compound called Theobromine, which when ingested by birds can create havoc very quickly because their metabolism is so fast and efficient. Symptoms of chocolate poisoning include hyperactivity, arrhythmia, diarrhea, vomiting, and death.

Caffeine– Great care should be taken with foods and liquids that contain caffeine. Think carefully about what you leave on the table, cabinet, or countertop when your bird is out of the cage. A momentary distraction such as answering the doorbell, telephone, or an email can be just long enough for your bird to drink your soda, coffee or tea ingesting enough caffeine to be fatal. Caffeine speeds up the heart rate causing seizure, heart arrhythmia, and eventually death.  

Sugar– A diet with large amounts of sugar encourages the growth of yeast, which increases the possibility of yeast infections in your bird. This is an atmosphere conducive to fungal growth (or Candida). This could cause your bird to suffer loss of appetite, depression, lethargy. These all weaken your bird’s immune system making them high susceptible to disease and infection. It’s best to let your bird get its sweetness from natural sugars in fruits and vegetables.

How Aloe Vera Can Help Prevent and Remove Foot Corns and Calluses

Corn Facts

One of the most common foot problems are corns and calluses. This happens when the skin of the foot is subjected to pressure and friction. Walking and other similar activities, especially since a person is wearing footwear, will bring about the thickening of the skin as reaction to the pressure and friction.

A callus, also known as tyloma, is formed by the thickened skin. If left untreated or continually subjected to pressure and friction, it will form a mass of dead skin cells. These masses of dead skin cells will have a focal point, unlike calluses that are diffused. When it gets a focal point, it is categorized as a corn.

If corns are not removed, they can be infected and get an ulcer. Abscess and pus may occur in the infected corn. Corns are a primary health concern especially to diabetics who have to take extreme care of their feet as any form of infection is more difficult for them to cure.

Preventive Treatment of Corns

To prevent corns from being continually subjected to pressure and friction, you would have to eliminate at the source. It may be necessary to change your footwear or add pads to it. You may also have to make adjustments to activities such as walking or running that will give pressure to your feet.

Scraping It Off

There are a lot of corn and callus removers in the market today that entails the use of tools to scrape and cut off the offending dead skin. These tools have to be used with great care. There are many instances wherein the user has scraped off so much skin to the point of injury.

Regular use of pumice stones during bathing can aid in callus removal. To get the most of the sand-papering effect, make sure to soak your feet in water while using the pumice stone. Treat your feet with skin softeners at night or make it part of you daily moisture routine for your feet.

Aloe Vera for Corns

Aloe Vera contains vitamins C and E plus zinc that can heal and soften the skin. The anti-bacterial nature of Aloe Vera will help prevent infections. Opting to use Aloe Vera products like gels and creams can aid in preventing and removing corns.

The method of application of Aloe Vera is simple. You have to wash and soap the feet first. After drying the feet, apply a generous amount of the Aloe Vera topical product and massage in for twenty to thirty minute. Application of the Aloe Vera product should be done at twice or thrice a day.

Anti Inflammatory Medicines and Ibuprofen

Anti-inflammatory medicines are so important because the airways in a child or adult with asthma may be inflamed or edematous. Anti-inflammatory medicine also causes the lining of the lungs to produce less mucus. Anti-inflammatory medicines that are swallowed, like in a pill or syrup, are taken when you or your child has serious symptoms and they need fast relief.

Anti-inflammatory medicines are (NSAIDs) are sometimes also referred to as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents/analgesics (NSAIAs). Of these, the most prominent member of this group of drugs is Ibuprofen (Advil and Motrin).

Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug and, like aspirin, it is its ability to reduce inflammation which makes it effective in treating headaches, because it is inflammation which helps to generate the nerve signals we perceive as pain. Ibuprofen is known to have an antiplatelet effect, though it is relatively mild and short-lived when compared with that of aspirin or other more well-known antiplatelet drugs. Ibuprofen is a core medicine in the World Health Organization ‘s “Essential Drugs List “, which is a list of minimum medical needs for a basic health care system. Ibuprofen is eliminated primarily by metabolism in the liver where CYP2C9 mediates the 2- and 3-hydroxylations of R- and S-ibuprofen. Ibuprofen and its metabolites are further conjugated to acyl glucuronides.

Ibuprofen is the generic name of the drug. Many pharmacies will fill your prescription with Advil, Medipren, if one is available, unless you or your doctor specifically asks for Ibuprofen. Ibuprofen is rapidly metabolized and eliminated in the urine. The excretion of ibuprofen is virtually complete 24 hours after the last dose.

Ibuprofen is as effective as indomethacin at closing a PDA in a very preterm or very small newborn, and has fewer adverse effects on kidney function. It may be associated with an increased risk of pulmonary complications including chronic lung disease and rarely pulmonary hypertension.

It works by stopping the body’s production of a substance that causes pain, fever, and inflammation. Ibuprofen is an effective analgesic. A single dose administration of 400 mg had an NNT of 2.5 (2.4 to 2.7) for at least 50% pain relief over 4 to 6 hours compared with placebo in pain of moderate to severe intensity. Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It may cause an increased risk of serious and sometimes fatal heart and blood vessel problems (eg, heart attack, stroke).

Ibuprofen is generally well-tolerated and most people do not experience any side effects. The most common side effects are related to stomach irritation and include abdominal pain, indigestion and nausea. Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by reducing inflammation, swelling, and pain.

As an NSAID it is believed to work through inhibition of cyclooxygenase (COX), thus inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis. There are at least 2 variants of cyclooxygenase (COX-1 and COX-2).

NSAIDs vary in their potency, duration of action, how they are eliminated from the body, how strongly they inhibit COX-1 and their tendency to cause ulcers and promote bleeding . The more an NSAID blocks COX-1, the greater is its tendency to cause ulcers and promote bleeding. NSAIDs work by inhibiting the cyclooxygenase (COX) enzymes COX-1 and COX-2, so preventing the formation of inflammatory prostaglandins from metabolism of arachidonic acid. However, by inhibiting COX-1 they can also cause serious gastrointestinal (GI) side effects and adversely affect platelet function. NSAIDs may cause side effects. The most common are stomach upset, heartburn, and nausea.

What You Should Expect Having Open Heart Surgery: A Patient’s Perspective

Having open heart surgery can be frightening, but sometimes there is no other choice. Heart surgery can resolve various heart conditions that would otherwise be fatal. There are various solutions to correct defective heart valves, repair aneurysms, unclog or bypass arteries, implant stents, and in the most critical cases replace an entire heart. Some people are diagnosed with a heart condition and plan their open heart surgery on their terms while others are subjected to emergency surgery to save their lives. People have different opinions on which circumstances are worse psychologically; to have the foresight of surgery in advance or to be thrust into the situation with no time to contemplate it. Sometimes the patients who know about the surgery ahead of time can feel scared, restless, angry, or depressed in the days leading up to the surgery. These healthy individuals who are diagnosed by surprise with a heart ailment seem to have the hardest time coming to terms with eminent open heart surgery. It’s harder for them to wrap their head around then for example a smoker who has not taken care of themselves. Age can also influence how a patient deals with a diagnosis. Young adults seem to have a harder time coping with it psychologically than elders. Also notable is that survivors of emergency open heart surgery can often have a harder time psychologically in recovery than those who had a planned operation.

Everyone is different, but below is generally what you can expect with open heart surgery. You’ll want to get your affairs in order ahead of time and plan in advance to have a stress free recovery. Many heart patients experience a period of deep introspection in the days before open heart surgery. You may question the meaning of life, why this happened to you, and you will undoubtedly want to spend quality time with your family. The evening before your open heart surgery is an important time to be spent quietly and intimately with your family.

You’ll skip breakfast on the morning of your open heart surgery and won’t eat anything. You’ll also shower with a special “sanitizing” soap provided by your surgeon. When you arrive at the hospital you will report to an administrative check-in where you will be required to fill out some documents. You will then have your vitals taken, and shortly thereafter you’ll be sent to the cardio-thoracic surgery unit. In a good hospital your family will be allowed to accompany you. When you arrive there will be numerous doctors and nurses present, as well as your anesthesiologist. They will take your vitals again, and when your surgeon arrives they will brief you and your family on the details of the actual open heart surgery. The anesthesiologist will tell you how things will go with putting you to sleep, as well as what to expect when you wake up afterward. Your surgeon will give you a rundown of everything and give you a chance to ask any remaining questions you might have. When they’re finished talking to you and your family, your anesthesiologist will likely put an IV in each arm while you are still awake. They use these to administer anesthesia and other medicine once you’re on the operating table.

Next you will say your goodbyes and a nurse will lead you to the operating room. The operating room will be brilliantly lit. The operating table is typically a slightly padded table on a pedestal that looks just the right size to hold your body and nothing more. There are no railings, obstructions, or legs on the corners of the table. Bright lights beam on it from every direction making it the center of attention. These tables look kind of like an ironing board. Alongside it are surgical tools laid out in an obsessively organized fashion. By now there are usually a bunch of other doctors and nurses in the room that will have various responsibilities during the surgery. They will ask you to climb onto the table and lay down. Nurses will start connecting you with various wires, and you may be asked to sign a waiver so that a representative from a medical equipment company can observe the surgery. Don’t panic, it’s tacky, but it’s a common practice and believe it or not is essential to new technology. Soon the anesthesiologist will begin to administer your initial anesthesia. Your surgeon may give you a final acknowledgement as you begin to feel drowsy, and before you know it you’ll be in a deep sleep. At that time the crew will continue connecting wires, inserting tubes (your urinary catheter, swans catheter, and later your breathing tube and more). You will be unconscious for the rest of the surgery, but in a good hospital the staff will give your family regular updates on how things are going. Occasionally patients speak of having unusually vivid dreams, or an outer body experience, but most people simply sleep. When the surgery is finished your surgeon will come out and brief your family, and soon after they will be allowed to see you in the recovery room.

You will most likely still be unconscious when your family sees you for the first time in the recovery room. You will probably still have a breathing tube in, and it may be a little scary for them to see you this way. Most patients claim their first memory after surgery is when the breathing tube is pulled out. You’ll be heavily sedated but you’ll probably hear a nurse inform you that they’re going to pull out your breathing tube. You’ll cough for a few moments as they pull it out, and your mouth will feel annoyingly hot and dry. You’ll be very thirsty but the nurse will only be able to offer you a wet swab on your lips and tongue until you are a little more alert at which time they may offer you ice chips. The amount of pain felt varies from patient to patient, but generally most heart surgery patients do not feel much pain due to the significant amount of drugs they are on. Generally speaking, patients say afterwards that the pain was much less than they thought it would be.

You will be on a lot of pain drugs in your first days in recovery. You’ll probably have a morphine drip that you can administer yourself by pressing a button when you’re in pain. There are automatically regulated limits to how much you can pump into yourself so you don’t have to worry about pressing the button too often. Hospital stays vary widely after open heart surgery depending on which procedure you have. You will sleep quite a bit and be loopy for the next few days. Around this time you’ll probably notice your incision as well as some bumps underneath it. The bumps are from the titanium wire they used to mend your ribs back together after surgery. They don’t really cause any harm and aren’t really noticeable unless you run your finger over them. Most heart scars fade away pretty nicely, and faster than expected. Your head will feel hazy due to the medications, and from the broad effects of surgery and being on the heart-lung(bypass) machine. After a few days you will be pushed to get out of bed and begin walking. Initially a short walk to the bathroom will seem like climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, but shortly thereafter you’ll be able to do it with no problem. You will start to walk the halls of the unit with your physical therapist. Your newfound fear of coughing, laughing, and sneezing, is normal, and you’ll probably be given a stuffed animal or something to hold against your chest when you do. This will counteract the pressure generated and make it more comfortable. Another thing you will dread is having your first bowel movement, but they won’t let you go home until you do. When you finally do have that special moment you will be pretty close to going home if all else is up to par. You’re not out of the woods when you leave to go home. It’s a big milestone, but care must be taken to follow your transition plan and stay in a positive state of mind.

Even though you’ll want to; the last thing you should do is go home and lay on the sofa every day. There are many things that can happen after heart surgery, arrhythmias, atrial flutter, low hemoglobin levels or blood issues, and many more that could warrant a return to the hospital. Having a positive attitude during any setbacks is the single most effective thing you can do to keep things moving along. Stay positive because once you get home your real recovery work begins.

Does Clogged Arteries Mean Veins Popping Out in the Neck?

Does clogged arteries mean veins popping out in the neck? You might be wondering why if you have no idea what clog arteries are to begin with. Clog arteries are very dangerous to the body. They may cause several symptoms that could lead to some very fatal conditions. Yes, if worse comes to worst, clog arteries can spell your untimely death.

An artery gets blocked when there is plaque accumulation and build-up within the walls of the artery. The plaque starts when there is a scar formation on a part of the arterial wall. How the scar is formed there is because of inflammation, and there could be several reasons. Needless to say, because of the scar, white blood cells migrate to the damaged portion together with calcium and other substances. These then cause the artery to harden, making it less elastic, thus prone to breakage. This also adds to the decreased blood circulation in the body.

When neck veins are clogged, they tend to bulge due to the pressure of the blood. Due to the blockage and due to the pressure of the blood flow, either the plaque formation would turn into an embolus and travel to the different parts of the body or it would predispose the artery to develop into an aneurysm. Thus, this is even more dangerous as the aneurysm could rupture anytime and it could cause massive internal bleeding. A person could die instantly from this condition. In order to prevent having an aneurysm, you have to avoid developing clogged arteries.

So, does clogged arteries mean veins popping out in the neck? Well, technically, veins are different from arteries. Veins are the blood vessels of the body that carry deoxygenated blood from the different parts of the body to the heart, while arteries carry oxygenated blood to the different parts of the body. Another difference is that veins have valves to keep the blood from flowing backwards; arteries don’t because the pressure of blood is high.

Clogged arteries in the neck may lead you to manifest symptoms like dizziness, headaches, blurry vision and even transient ischemic attacks. A majority of the symptoms associated with clogged neck arteries are related to brain function. Thus, it means that when the neck arteries get blocked, the brain is most likely to be damaged due to the deoxygenated blood. The brain’s function gets altered because of the blockage. These symptoms manifest either while there is blockage or after a long time after the clog accumulated. This could be treated if it is addressed immediately. One of the commonly prescribed medications for this is a low dose of aspirin to help the blood thin and to further prevent the clotting of blood. If this does not treat it, then your physician might suggest other medications or he might advise you to get some surgical procedures done. These might help in getting rid of the plaques in the body.

What Is Yellow Jaundice, and How Can It Be Cured?

Yellow jaundice is a condition which makes your skin turn slightly yellow. The reason for this pigmentation is intoxication of the blood with bilirubin. Jaundice is an extremely dangerous condition, which should be treated immediately. The good news is that there is a natural way to treat jaundice, which anyone can easily apply in the privacy of their own home. Keep reading to learn more!

Yellow jaundice is most common in newborns, although it can affect adults as well. The cause of this condition is usually a liver problem. The liver filters the hemoglobin in blood, and removes bilirubin from it. Once the liver’s function is impaired, the levels of bilirubin rise, giving the skin a yellowish color. Several diseases can cause jaundice, but the cause is often excessive alcohol consumption, or a genetic disorder. Regardless of the cause, jaundice can be eliminated naturally. In fact, the natural approach is the only one that works in the case. Why is that? Because medications, prescribed by doctors only suppress the symptoms, and aim to reduce bilirubin levels. That should be a function of the liver, and as a result – it fails even more, leading to even more severe symptoms. That’s why it is important to treat the rood cause.

So, why does the natural approach work, when it comes to yellow jaundice? Because it aims to supply the body with the tools and nutrients, which it needs, in order to eliminate the condition on it’s own. Only your own body can get rid of jaundice, and no amount of outside medication, designed to replace the function of the liver can help. Doctors are often not aware of the new findings in the health field, and that’s why they often keep prescribing medication, known to cause more problems, than the disease itself. Jaundice is one of the few diseases, where the natural treatment does work – in fact, it is the only way to quickly beat jaundice, and keep it from coming back.
